Unusually wide choice of music in Gloucester, Rockport & Manchester on Saturday

Every once in a while it’s worth reminding ourselves that Gloucester is a hub of music, which is one good reason to live here (and to visit).  This weekend proves it.  As usual, you have excellent live music choices in Gloucester (see complete schedule here).  Plus on Saturday, the Rockport HarvestFest, the Old Sloop and the Landing 9 hour acoustic festival add about 20 artists to your choices.  Here are two of our favorites, whom you don’t get to see very often:

Satch Kerans 7:30pm at The Old Sloop with Red House recording artist Drew Nelson.  Here’s what Jonathan Perry of the Boston Globe says about Satch, “reemerges  with some of the best songs he has ever written, at the collection’s core is a  clutch of sturdy melodies and classic pop structures…Kerans gets better and surer with age.”

Brad Byrd is in Dock Square at 3:30pm with his excellent band, who are in this video shot at Minglewood back in May.  See more Brad Byrd videos here.
